Contemplating about my academic future...

Hurrah to weekend! :)

But boo to weather :(

Its pouring down heavily with rain here at the moment. Had to drive to Enfield as Martin e-bayed a really good bargain for a massive server weighting 50 kilos! Just got back and Martin is now playing with his new toy! I'm supposed to be doing some studying and I will after typing this - I need to catch up with the study - we're going away in September possibly to Ireland when I should be doing my big final essay of the whole course on culture, power and identity of the Roman empire. Therefore I need to be ahead with the study schedule so that I can fit everything I need to do around our hols.

Have been contemplating of doing Masters in the last few days. I've been toying with the idea of doing Classical Studies at this level (Open Uni offers really interesting course which can be found here). At the same time, I'm really keen with the thought of doing Translation studies at this level as well and found really good course with the University of Birmingham who offers this course on distance learning basis (for a quick glimpse of this course, click here). To be honest, I'm torn at the moment as I cannot decide which! The translation studies is probably more useful in my current field of work as I am in the process of setting up BSL/English Interpreting training course/assessment. But I don't think I'd like to be stuck in this field forever though...

Oh hum - there's no hurry anyway :) I'd better get back to studying now and try to be ahead of the study schedule.
